Down With Trump

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


On Fox Business Network tonight,   Lou Dobbs   continued to praise President   Donald Trump’s   leadership on coronavirus and invited viewers to vote on how great a job he’s done.

The choices on the poll are: “superb,” “great,” or “very good.” No, seriously.

#LDTPoll : How would you grade President Trump’s leadership in the nation's fight against the Wuhan Virus… superb, great or very good?   #KAG2020   #AmericaFirst   #Dobbs

— Lou Dobbs (@LouDobbs)   March 18, 2020

In the past year, Dobbs has gotten a lot of attention for his effusive,  over-the-top praise  of the president, including when he said  “it will be century after century of veneration for this president”  and  “he’s already set a standard… for presidents that most mortals won’t be able to meet”  and  “it is a shame that this country which… is benefitting so much from this president’s leadership does not understand their obligations to the leader who is making it possible for all of us.”

So, a wingnut dog whistle then.

Medical professionals have been asking people not to call it that, haven't they? There is no point whatsoever in attaching some kind of ethnicity to it, other than douchebaggery.

Odd that we don't call H1N1, which was first detected in California, the American swine flu, isn't it?  I mean, since some are so keen on naming diseases after their countries of origin, or supposed countries of origin.

Measles.

Considering those names are from over 100 and 200 years ago, respectively, I don't feel any responsibility for them. I suppose they don't bother me much, being part of the past.

Nevertheless, they are misleading and xenophobic names for H1N1 and Rubella.

A whistle for what? And since when? We've been referring to epidemics by locations for generations.

Medical professionals have been asking people not to call it that, haven't they?

Have they? Why? I had heard that they wanted people to call it Covid-19 instead of Coronavirus, but people keep using the latter word.

There is no point whatsoever in attaching some kind of ethnicity to it, other than douchebaggery.

It's just a location, not an ethnicity.

Anyway, it seems to have been pretty common up until about five minutes ago. Maybe it's just to be specific about the virus in a way that less technical sounding?

Is it only bad when Fox News does it? Cuz CNN has used it a ton. I wonder who they're whistling to.

CNN:

Wuhan coronavirus death toll rises, as city imposes transport lockdown

Disease detectives hunting down more information about 'super spreader' of Wuhan coronavirus

China confirms Wuhan virus can be spread by humans

China reports over 7,000 cases of Wuhan coronavirus cases

At least 7,711 cases of Wuhan coronavirus have been confirmed in China . . . All 31 provinces in mainland China have now reported cases of the Wuhan coronavirus.

Number of Wuhan coronavirus cases inside mainland China overtakes SARS, as virus spreads worldwide

Wuhan coronavirus deaths spike again as outbreak shows no signs of slowing

NPR didn't mind using it either.

H1N1 is also called "Swine Flu." Is that supposed to be a slur on pigs?

Well, sure. Just watch. Going forward, the vast majority of people calling it 'Wuhan Virus' or 'China Virus' in the media will be right wing pundits and politicians. And they'll go out of their way to do it, too -- on purpose, out of nothing but bad faith, tribal asshattery. Just like with any other wingnut dog whistle, like 'Democrat Party'.

I was talking about Spanish Flu and German Measles there, but, yes, misleading. The disease agents come from nature, not people, including this new SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19.

Naming new diseases after ethnicities, nationalities, or human population centers can stigmatize people who had absolutely nothing to do with the evolutionary mutations in nature that created them. Pretty sure that's why medical professionals don't want it done anymore. Case in point...

Asians worldwide share examples of coronavirus-related xenophobia on social media

Only in the little minds of some.

A virus established itself in the Peoples Republic of China, aka Communist China, and the Communist Chinese government tried desperately to hide and downplay it, even though it was originated in Wuhan Province which also happens to be the home of the premier bio-weapons lab in the Peoples Republic of China, aka Communist China, and there are some who defend China and rightly calling a virus which originated in said location with the name of said location is in some way xenophobic.

You really can't make this shit up.   Actually you can, since everything else against President Trump failed, to include Collusion, Russia, Mueller, so let's blame him for this.

Yeah, like our tiny-minded Douchebag-in-Chief. Here he is doing exactly what I described in 1.1.10 -- going out of his way to be a scumbag. He scratched out the word Corona and wrote in Chinese, on purpose, for no practical or helpful reason whatsoever. Nothing but asshat dumbfuckery.

The issue with the name of this particular virus has to do with the stigmatization of Asians around the world. I was going to compile a list of news reports about it, but discovered that someone on Wikipedia already has, so I'll just post a link to that instead: 

Xenophobia and racism related to the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic

Here are some excerpts from the U.S. part of the page (there are 33 countries on the list so far):

  • On 10 March 2020, a Korean woman in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, was confronted on the street by somebody yelling "Where is your corona mask, you Asian bitch?" before punching the woman, dislocating her jaw.
  • an Asian man walking with his 10-year-old son was harassed by a person yelling, "Where the fuck is your mask? You fucking Chinese" before being hit over the head.
  • In the New York City Subway, a woman wearing a face mask was punched and kicked by a man who called her "diseased".
  • In a Philadelphia SEPTA subway station, an Asian couple was surrounded by a group and attacked.
  • A 16-year-old boy in San Fernando Valley was physically attacked by bullies in his high school who accused him of having the coronavirus because he is Asian-American.

Tiny little minds, indeed. They're pretty easy to spot by their insistence on being deplorable fuckwads.

Sorry Ma'am - just trying to add some levity.  Did research on it and it's really interesting how the disease was diagnosed in a 3,500 year old mummy and has occurred numerous times over the years, but that it wasn't until the '70's that they actually started studying it after the infections in Conn.

Superb job by our President. He is exactly the right person to lead the country through this precisely because of his business experience.

And because as he did today to put the media in their place over their desire for totalitarian Federal takeover of the country because of this virus.

Trump correctly pointed out that most of the responsibility and actions properly lies with state and local governments with the Federal facilitating where it can.
